Do you really want to do full-on ldap mail routing in sendmail? Unless
you have a couple of servers it's really not needed. Sendmail will
deliver mail to ldap users by default if nss_ldap has been setup to
allow the system to resolve users against the directory.
I only have a single server so I just put in a ldap map in sendmail to
resolve virtusertable against the directory therefore resolving every
email address to a literal user. In order to prevent sendmail from
delivering mail to users that do not have a mail address explicitly
defined in the directory, I had to write a rule that looks up every
incoming email address and returns "unknown user" if the email address
isn't found in the directory.
This caused my mail system to work exactly like post.office or netscape
messaging where every email address is logically bound to a user or
denied. This also eliminates user conflicts. As long as the username
is unique and the email address is unique your good to go.
Hope that helps,
I'm looking at using the lachman-laser-ldap-mail-routing
schema in the misc.schema file in the openldap-2.1.17
distribution with sendmail.
Has anyone done much with this ? The file does metion that it
is not recommeneded for production use. So does this mean
that the sendmail ldap mail routing stuff should not really be
used in a production environment ?
